I will give thanks to You, forever...

Thanksgiving is more than just a day we celebrate later this month. It should be the lifestyle of us as Jesus followers. satan loves to get our focus on to all of the things that we don't like about our life-the prayers we've yet to have answered, the circumstances we don't like, the hurts that have come our way. he hates it when we praise God and give Him the thanks we deserves. Our choice to be a person of praise and gratitude is one of the most powerful spiritual weapons against the forces of darkness that we have in our arsenal. I choose to give thanks to God, forever!
Since 2009 I've been counting my blessings thanks to the prompting of Ann Voskamp.
 I continue to count my thanks, 
piling up gratitude day by day in my journal.
(and capturing some of my blessings via my camera or iPhone)
